Here is what you need:
Gold Metal Bucket
– Vinyl (I used lime tree green and black in a matte finish)
– Tissue paper or napkin (Optional)
– Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
– Cut File (see link below)
Candy wrapped in Gold Foil

Here is what you do:
1. Use your electronic cutter to cut your vinyl, add registration marks for easy layering.
2. Weed the excess vinyl
3. Apply the transfer tape to the first layer.  Peel the vinyl and transfer tape away from the backing.  Place the vinyl and tape over the second layer (be sure to match up your registration marks). Remove the backing and apply to the metal bucket.
4. Remove the transfer tape.

I wanted some contrast between the gold bucket and gold foil on the candy, so I placed a cute black and white polka dot napkin in the bucket (you could also use tissue paper) and added the candy. I used Hershey’s Nuggets.

Don’t you love the font?  It’s a new one I downloaded from Creative Fabrica.  It’s called Amastery.  Each letter has so many variations with swirls and curls galore. I think it’s my new favorite.

  1. What a cute file for St Patrick’s Day! Thank you so much for your generosity!

    Angie, I love, love your new site design!! Did you set it up yourself?

    One final question: I know you’re an affiliate for Creative Fabrica but am wondering if you also can offer a discount code like I saw on another file designer’s site. I would rather join under you than someone I don’t know as well. If you want to write me privately, I will give you the site so you can see how she advertises it.
